AUA practices holistic admissions – we are looking for students who succeed on and off-campus. At AUA, the decision to offer a student admission is never based on just one factor. We always look at academic credentials, exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer activities, and more.
AUA offers 4-year undergraduate degrees in Business, English & Communications, Politics & Governance, Computer Science, Data Science, Engineering Sciences, and Nursing. All programs are offered as part of a liberal arts education to assure that graduates are specialists and well-rounded individuals who can think critically and creatively, learn independently, understand different thought processes, work collaboratively, and communicate effectively with people from different cultures and disciplines.
AUA practices holistic admissions. We select students who have the skills and ability to succeed in their studies and for whom AUA is well suited to their educational and career goals. Once a student submits an application, it is screened for technical eligibility. If eligible, the Undergraduate Admissions Committee will conduct a thorough review of the application. The applicant will receive a notification of his/her admission status by email up to 10weeks after the admission deadline date.
As admission to AUA is competitive, the committee will consider both academic and personal information, including educational background, official entrance exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer experience, essays, and an interview, if applicable.
